France has always been a source of inspiration for the arts, gastronomy, and fashion. It is also known and admired for the values of equality, fraternity and social justice which it has always conveyed. It is not surprising that its associative landscape is so varied and contributes so actively to social cohesion.
In fact, every year more than 30,000 new non-profits are born. Most of them exist thanks to the volunteering that is intrinsically part of French culture. Each carries a strong field of influence, and the latest studies reveal a fairly important trend of sports and cultural associations.
If the French know how to give their time, the latest trends reveal that they also know how to give their money and are rather loyal donors. Indeed, 60% of them entrust their donation to associations to which they had already contributed in the past. Average donations vary according to age and social affiliation, but it is around 395 euros and sometimes up to 1.8% of income.
In addition, French organizations and foundations enjoy both state and local tax benefits and grants. These reliefs act as partial or full funding toward project completion.
The Paris team welcomes you in its new offices in Rue du Colisee, Paris, and invites you to discover its unique and methodically executed concept! Using the complete line of global services, our local team can help you navigate the complexities of your donor network and exceed your own expectations.
